RaceCar laps

I don't understand if i have added the laps increment correctly and have added laps = 0 in the Class.

class RaceCar:
    def __init__(self, color , fuel_remaining, laps, **kwargs):
        self.color  = color 
        self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining
        self.laps = 0
        for key, value in kwargs.items():

    def run_lap(self, length, laps):
        self.fuel_remaining -= length*0.125
        self.laps += 1

You're setting "laps" correctly, but you've also added it as a required argument to both methods.

Neither method needs "laps" as a parameter.
